Elizabeth Warren’s recipes sound familiar
Boston Herald ^ | May 19, 2012 | Howie Carr

Posted on 05/19/2012 4:48:44 AM PDT by billorites

Elizabeth Warren, the fake Indian, has another problem with the Pow Wow Chow cookbook.

It seems that at least two of her “special recipes passed down through the Five Tribes families” are identical to ones from The New York Times [NYT] that were printed in 1979.

And they’re not just from any eatery either — the recipes came from Le Pavillon, the fabulous French restaurant that domin-ated le haute cuisine in Man-- hattan from 1941 to 1966.

Amazing, too, that Granny’s recipes for Crab With Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing, and Cold Omelets With Crab Meat, while no doubt popular along the Trail of Tears, were likewise tres populaire with Le Pavillon’s Beaut-iful People clientele.

As Pierre Franey, the Pav-illon chef and original author of the recipes put it, “The dish was a great favorite of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and Cole Porter.”

Cole Porter was an Indian? Who knew?

Granny’s 1984 Crab With Tom-ato Mayonnaise Dressing is a word-for-word recreation of Franey’s 1979 recipe. And I do mean, word for word.

As for Cold Omelets With Crab Meat, it’s more of the same.

Franey: “Use a small omelet pan or, preferably, a seven-inch Teflon pan.”

Warren: “Use a small omelet pan or, preferably, a seven-inch Teflon pan.”

Franey: “Heat about one-half teaspoon butter in the pan.”

Warren: “Heat about one-half teaspoon butter in the pan.”

A call to the Warren campaign seeking comment on the uncanny similarities between the two recipes was not returned.

There are also some questions about a third recipe, “Herbed Tom-atoes.” That one includes a seldom-used phrase, “Add tomatoes cored-side down.”

We Googled that phrase and came upon part of a 1959 recipe from Better Homes & Gardens. By press time, we hadn’t found the actual recipe.

So let’s review. First she was an Indian, then she wasn’t. First she was poor in her childhood, then she became middle-class. She’s not rich, but she is worth up to $14.6 million, and her wigwam is assessed at $1.7 million.

Meanwhile, it appears Granny must have known that this fake-Indian cloud was hanging over her. On the page describing her induction last year into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, it says, “She proudly tells everyone ... she is ‘an Okie to my toes.’ ... ‘Being an Okie keeps me grounded.’ ”

I’m going to have to refer this question to Merle Haggard, who wrote “Okie from Muskogee.” Do real Okies like cold omelets, Merle? Do real Okies lift recipes calling for cognac from hoity-toity French restaurants in New York?

No? Well, la-de-da Harvard professors do

Fake Indian Heritage, plagiarism, stealth liberal wealth....boy howdy, this lady is just full of surprises!

The one thing that often trips these liberals up is when they're not satisfied with pulling the wool over society in their quest for personal wealth is that they make the mistake of thinking that success will carry over to public success. They can never get enough.

Sounds like Warren’s recipes are about as authentic as her claimed ancestry.

==

My Dad used to tell us that we were 1/32nd Indian. The story was that one of the grandfathers was married to a full-blood. Dad and most of the family of his generation and earlier died decades ago, so we have no one to really verify the story.

Recently, a distant relative did a family history that included tracing Dad’s paternal ancestry back to South Carolina in the mid-1700s.

No ‘Native American’ was found.

I recently did some research on Dad’s maternal ancestry back to Ireland in the late 1700s.

Again, no ‘Native American’ was found.

I do recall a few photographs that included a middle-aged NA woman. The photos were taken in the early part of the 1900s. They didn’t have any identification written on them, but they was in the collection of ‘family photos’ that the family had. That box of photos, however, was lost in the late 1960s during a family move. No one in the family seemed to know who that NA woman was, what her relationship to the family was, or why she was in some photos in the family collection.

I find it odd that as a Democrat she claims to be an Indian instead of a Native American.

What would a Cherokee Indian from Oklahoma do with a Crab recipe?

It's at least 900 miles to the ocean from there...

They make this distilled adult beverage in Bhutan that has a tinge of buffalo chip in it.

True to it's origins this delightful thirst quencher has little bits of black char from Yak chips.

Did you see this one?

I thoroughly enjoy the recipes here. My favorite one is called "Diversity Dish." This was contributed by the world's only confirmed blond-haired, blue-eyed Cherokee who used her tomahawk to dig this up from her Oklahoma archives. You start out with 10 quarts of sanctimony, add in a gallon of hypocrisy, throw in a few fables (I recommend the "Family Lore" brand available in Cambridge), add a pinch of whining (1/32 ounce will work), toss in a paleface poseur and a large measure of insufferability. No integrity required. And there you have it: political career implosion. Great for faculty lounge gatherings and unearned academic advancement.

(Is this a subtle dig at being a hyphenated American? I would have thought that at her age, she would have lost her hyphen by now.)

What do they have in common?

7. They are both far left libs, leftist, socialists, Demo-Rats, progressives, commies (but I repeat myself) and as such, are immune from having their corruption exposed by the equally, corrupt and biased, Lame Stream Media, thus ain't nuttin' gonna come of this.

And that as (for those who are old enough to remember) Baretta used to say, "you can take to the bank!"

Oh, come on now, people! Isn't it obvious what has happened here?

Pierre Franey plagiarized the recipe from Warren's Granny! Probably sneaked around in Oklahoma to find it! (Oklahoma, being so close to the ocean and all, is famous for its seafood recipes, everybody knows that!)

Shame on Franey!!

Check the US Census. It often includes such info. It's probably more accurate that the memories of aging relatives anyway.

Back in the early 1800s, no settler worth their salt ventured west of the Mississippi without plenty of trade goods in which to exchange with Indian tribes.

So they ensured their stagecoaches had plenty of frozen crab meat, canned tomatoes, 7-inch teflon pans, etc.

Not trying to be an apologist for Warren but didn't the Cherokees originate in Alabama and Georgia before they were removed to Oklahoma?

Alabama and Georgia both have shore lines. Where they would get the Velvetta and mayonnaise is an entirely different question as those parts of the south had severe "food desserts" and a dearth of 7-11 stores during that period.

My wife and I are adopting two children, the girl wants to keep her last name (Lindsey) as a middle name and take our last name as her last name, which is perfectly fine with us. I've been very explicit all along the process that she have no hyphen between Lindsey and her new last name.

Watch the court or someone in the birth certificate office screw it up. Illinois is a liberal state and liberals seem to love those hyphenated names. If they do, I'll have to go back to court to get her birth certificate changed.

You know, regular folk have to abide by every regulation the Government throws at Citizens and Business.

Progressives simply make stuff up, put it on their resume, and get an edge over everyone else (see Elizabeth and Obama). Then, those in positions of responsibility never vet the lies, and the media does not care.

Time to flush all Progressives out of Government
